Synopsis

Ben and Rose are children from two different times, more alike than they know, and both longing for lives beyond the ordinary. Rose (Millicent Simmonds) lives in 1927 Hoboken, a lonely deaf girl who finds escapism in the glamour of silent movies and an obsession with an actress (Julianne Moore) whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook.

Ben (Oakes Fegley) is a kid from a dead-end town in 1977 Minnesota who wants nothing more than to learn about his absent father – then his life is stained by yet more tragedy when he loses his mother (Michelle Williams) in a car crash, and is struck deaf by a freak lightning bolt.

When Ben discovers a perplexing clue to his father’s identity, and Rose learns her heroine is set to perform on Broadway, they both strike out for the thrilling bright lights of New York City’s concrete jungle – 50 years apart, of course –on epic quests to find the thing they’re lacking.

Based on a novel by Brian Selznick (The Invention of Hugo Cabret), Todd Haynes brings the story of these cosmically connected children to life through two captivating, interlocking narratives.

Reviews

  • “Alive with the magic of pictures and the mysteries of silence... an uncommonly grownup film about children, communication, connection and memory.” – The Hollywood Reporter
